Brittany Biewen

Convention Services Manager

Born and raised in the Twin Cities suburbs, Brittany has always been active in sports. She danced competitively for nine years and continued to workout in college but, never thought she could be a runner. After attending the Twin Cities Marathon in October 2013, Brittany was inspired to start running and the marathon became her goal. She started her running program slowly with one mile, then worked her way up to a 10k and then a 10-mile race. The more she trained, the more she began to look forward to her runs every week. Running became an outlet and a way to make time for herself. Brittany still hopes to run a marathon someday but, until then running, wellness and fitness in general is something that stays with her and gives her the confidence that she can tackle anything in daily life.

Karl Dehkes

Director of Event Technology, PSAV®

Originally from Mendota Heights, Minnesota, Karl manages sales and operations of all technical services for meetings and special events at The Westin Edina Galleria. His first passion in life is music with a special love for drumming and DJing. Karl has performed in bands and at events since he was 14 years old. You can also often find Karl on the golf course. His favorite being Tom Lehmann’s “Troy Burn” located across the Minnesota River in Hudson, WI. These days, running is the healthiest part of Karl’s life. He was born prematurely without his right pulmonary artery and was told he may not live or, may never be able to perform strenuous cardio activities. Karl proved both to be wrong and in 2013 took up running. Then in 2014, Karl ran his first marathon – the Twin Cities Marathon from Minneapolis to St. Paul. Karl continues to run two to five miles – six days a week!
